"Obama opposes same-sex marriage, but also opposed the California constitutional amendment Warren backed."

He did oppose it, not quite in the same way that he "opposed" the invasion and occupation of Iraq, but close. He *publicly* (in a joint interview with the same Rick Warren) announced his opposition to same-sex marriage, but only *privately* (in a letter to a gay rights group and in an obscure section of his website) announced his opposition to Prop. 8. And, when prop 8 supporters circulated a letter containing quotes from him opposing gay marriage (and hence implying that he was a supporter of prop 8), Obama did nothing to counter its effect (e.g., by issuing a public statement denouncing the letter and affirming his opposition to 8).
